Incorpore helps over 2,000 employers across the UK and Ireland to provide staff with key health and fitness benefits, including access to discounted gym memberships through MyGymDiscounts.
Through the partnership, Healix will offer Incorpore’s fitness services to its members, helping employers to retain their current workforce.
Healix explained that it found that staff with access to health and wellness benefits are happier, healthier and more productive and this can boost employee engagement by more than a quarter (25 per cent). In addition, it said that over two thirds of applicants (69 per cent) are likely to favour a job opportunity which offers better benefits – meaning that providing access to wellbeing facilities and promoting regular exercise also leaves employers better equipped to attract and retain talent.
Ian Talbot, CEO, Healix Health Services, said: “Helping employees with their wellbeing is not only the right thing to do, making them happier and healthier, it also has undeniable business benefits. Physical and mental health play a huge role in how engaged and productive people are at work, and in turn this impacts profitability. Helping our clients do just that has always been our core aim, so our partnership with Incorpore is very well matched.”
James Shillaker, Managing Director at Incorpore, added: “The pandemic has shed some light on the importance of regular exercise for employee health and wellbeing and with many employees now returning to work, and companies permanently switching between hybrid working models, it’s crucial for employers to provide flexible options to access gyms and fitness facilities both near homes and workplaces.”
